SECOND LINE-UP ANNOUNCEMENT

TRUCK FESTIVAL 2019 GETS EVEN BIGGER WITH SECOND LINE-UP ANNOUNCEMENT

Following on from the first line-up news for the 22nd edition of the festival, which saw Wolf Alice, Foals and Two Door Cinema club announced and 75% of tickets for the festival sold in just a month, Truck Festival has now unveiled even more exciting, big names for 2019.

Johnny Marr, Public Service Broadcasting and many more have now been added to the line-up of the UK’s longest running and most cherished small festival Truck Festival which takes place from July 25th – 28th at Hill Farm in Steventon, Oxfordshire.

Johnny Marr, the iconic singer-songwriter and guitarist who with his former band The Smiths, pioneered the indie rock sound and paved the way for alternative guitar music to dominate teenage bedrooms and the British charts alike. Whilst going on to play with influential bands such as The Cribs and Modest Mouse, Marr has now found his footing as a solo artist releasing three critically acclaimed albums and recently dropping brand new alt-disco-pop single ‘Armatopia’ which will no doubt soundtrack the festivals this summer from Glastonbury to Hill Farm.

Public Service Broadcasting combines an upbeat post-rock musical sound with spoken word public service broadcasting announcement vocals that give the band their name. Lifting these vocals from archival clips and announcements the London-based trio base their music on historical themes from inventions, space exploration, to industrial triumphs and fails. Creating something completely new from stories of old.  Last year’s four-track EP ‘White Star Liner’ focussed on The Titanic.  The band are no strangers to Hill Farm speaking of their excitement at returning for 2019, they commented “This is going to be our third time at Truck Festival and we’re very pleased to be heading back – it’s always been a fun one for us. See you in July!”

Other artists added to the line-up include youtuber and singer-songwriter Dodie whose debut album charted top five this year and who has already sold out venues such as The Roundhouse. The Japanese House, the solo project of Amber Bain who released her electronica-infused pop debut album this year via The 1975’s label Dirty Hit, rock act Mallory Knox andindie pop band Anteros.  Once again this year Hill Farm is very excited to welcome back The Oxford Symphony Orchestra who are always a highlight and have become somewhat of a resident band at Truck with their classical versions of well-loved tracks showcasing the best of local talent.

Truck Festival has also teamed up with local party starters SWITCH to announce the line-up for dance tent Palm City; which includes Macky Gee, Notion, Turno, MY NU LENG, Emerald, Ocean Wisdom, K Motionz w/ MC Skibadee, Switch DJ’s and the billing for This Feeling x Pirate Studios Stage which consists of Red Rum Club, Saint Agnes, Sugarthief, The Van T’s, Black Doldrums, The Estevans, Getrz, The Kicklips, Lacuna Bloome, Latenight Honeymoon, Vida, RATS and Young Garbo.

Festival organiser Matt Harrap commented, “We’re incredibly excited to finally share a huge wave of artists to our bumper Truck Festival 2019 line-up! Indie royalty Johnny Marr will be making his first trip to Hill Farm, with a setlist full of iconic Smiths’ material and awesome solo work, it is truly amazing to have one of music’s all-time greats to Hill Farm. I can’t wait for Public Service Broadcasting to close the Market Stage on Friday night – they’ve always delivered a mind-blowing show and to have them back for the third time this year is going to be awesome!

As we say every time, the whole team are truly overwhelmed with the response to our line-up so far, with 75% of all Weekend Tickets sold, we really don’t recommend hanging around! It will be the biggest and best Truck ever.”

STAGE ENTERTAINMENT AND GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS   PRESENT  “THE HUNTER”

STAGE ENTERTAINMENT AND GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS PRESENT “THE HUNTER”

STAGE ENTERTAINMENT AND GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS PRESENT “THE HUNTER” SECOND SINGLE FROM UPCOMING ORIGINAL LONDON CAST ALBUM “TINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL”

STAGE ENTERTAINMENT and GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS announce the release of the second single “The Hunter” featuring Kobna Holdbrook-Smith who plays Ike Turner on the upcoming TINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL Original London Cast Recording available to stream and download HERE now.  The full album is now available for pre-order and is scheduled to be released for digital download and streaming on Friday, March 29. A physical CD is planned for release later this spring. Customers who pre-order the digital album will immediately receive a download of “The Hunter” along with the first single “River Deep – Mountain High. To pre-order or pre-save the album, please visit HERE
TINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL’s Arrangements, Additional Music and Musical Supervisor, Nicholas Skilbeck says, “The Hunter was originally recorded by Ike and Tina Turner at the end of the 1960s and saw Tina’s first R&B Vocal Performance Grammy nomination. Ike Turner was a music revolutionary, considered by some, to be the father of rock n roll. In TINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL we repositioned the song to be performed by Ike Turner (Kobna Holdbrook-Smith) and The Kings of Rhythm live at Club Manhattan in St. Louis in the 1950s, show-casing Ike’s musical genius and his role in creating the sound of tomorrow. When recording, the idea was to give this song a vintage quality but as though it had never been heard before, the listener is thrust back in time, into the raw energy of an early rock and roll gig, as if witnesses at the birth of the music revolution. Like our “River Deep-Mountain High” recording, it’s very much about feeling you are in the room with the music, Kobna, Adrienne, the band and having that visceral connection to it.”

The album was recorded in February 2019 at Angel Studios and produced by Nicholas Skilbeck and Ghostlight Records founder, Kurt Deutsch, and co-produced by Tom Kelly.
 
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees PrinsTINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL is choreographed by Anthony van Laast, with set and costume designs by Mark Thompson, musical supervision by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Nevin Steinberg, projection design by Jeff Sugg and orchestrations by Ethan Popp. The critically acclaimed production received its world premiere in April 2018 in London and subsequently has broken all Box Office records at the Aldwych Theatre, where it is now booking to December 2019. Adrienne Warren, who plays Tina Turner in the show in the West End, will recreate her celebrated performance on Broadway in Autumn 2019. 
 
From humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into the global Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tina Turner didn’t just break the rules, she rewrote them. This new stage musical, presented in association with Tina Turner herself, reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race. The German premiere of TINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL began performances earlier this month at the Stage Operettenhaus in Hamburg.

Florence  + The Machine and The National-New Special Guests Added!

Florence + The Machine and The National-New Special Guests Added!

Florence + The Machine and The National-New Special Guests Added!

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park add a host of very special guests to the bill for Florence + The Machine’s triumphant homecoming on Saturday July 13th, who headline alongside festival favourites and one of the most highly rated live acts around, The National. 

Joining these two iconic acts, as well as the already announced Lykke Li, Khruangbin and Nadine Shah, are Blood OrangeAldous HardingMarlon WilliamsLet’s Eat Grandma and Goat Girl.

It’s been a remarkable year for Florence, whose fourth album High As Hope already has the feel of a career-defining moment. Florence’s recent tour in support of the album was greeted with across-the-board five-star reviews. With the album also landing Welch the third Mercury Prize nomination of her career, Florence + The Machine’s live return to London this summer should not be missed. 

Sharing the stage are an American indie institution from Ohio, The National. With big plans this year, including a newly-announced album ‘I Am Easy To Find’ due out in May and an international tour, this will be their return to BST Hyde Park after their 2014 show with Neil Young. 

Blood Orange is the R&B and electronic-inspired project of musician, producer and regular Florence collaborator, Dev Hynes. Hynes has worked with a who’s who of modern music – with his latest Blood Orange album, 2018’s Negro Swan, featuring A$AP Rocky and Puff Daddy amongst many others. He’s also continued his work as an esteemed producer / songwriter, working alongside the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Britney Spears, Blondie and most recently with Solange on her standout album – When I Get Home. Hynes makes his exciting return to BST Hyde Park after he last supported his friends Florence + The Machine back in 2016. 

New Zealand’s folk singer-songwriter Aldous Harding is also on the tempting line up. Harding is set to release her third album Designer this April, and the current single ‘The Barrel’ perfectly highlights why she is held in such high regard. It is not just her studio outputs that have earned praise, with her captivating appearance on Later… with Jools Hollandoffering an exciting glimpse of what’s to come in Hyde Park.

Another New Zealander making up the bill is Marlon Williams. Incorporating folk, bluegrass, country and blues into his music, Marlon supported Bruce Springsteen on tour in 2017, and recently appeared in A Star is Born alongside Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. This year, he’s been touring Australia alongside Florence + The Machine, and the pair even performed a stunning duet of his track, ‘Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore’.

Let’s Eat Grandma are Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, a British duo hailing from Norwich who first met in primary school aged 5 and became bandmates at the tender age of 13. Both still in their teens, their 2018 album I’m All Ears was met with widespread acclaim – seeing Pitchfork brand it “future-pop at its best: kaleidoscopic production and incisive lyrics that swirl into marvellous, breath-taking songs”. Now is the perfect time to catch them in action. 

Goat Girl is an all-female post-punk band who chronicle the woes of modern British with undimmed ferocity. The quartet, who go by the pseudonyms L.E.D., Clottie Cream, Naima Jelly and Rosy Bones,released their self-titled debut last year. It was praised by critics and boasts their growling guitar sound and drooling vocals, which hark back to feelings of fiery teenage angst. They are one of the artists sprung from a burgeoning, close-knit south London scene, similar to Florence Welch herself. 

These acts join analready magnificent bill. Lykke Li is instantly recognisable with her sensuous, barely-there vocals, backed up by an electro dance sound. Released last year, her fourth album ‘so sad so sexy’ shifts away from the dream-poppy breakup ballads of 2014’s ‘I Never Learn’ toward airy, melancholic takes on trap and R&B. Khruangbin (Thai for airplane, or literally “engine fly”) are a jet-setting trio from Texas. Their dreamy sound comes from a blend of global music influences with soul, dub and psychedelia. Nadine Shah, whose third album, ‘Holiday Destination’ was this year nominated for a Mercury Prize. Finding her voice as a Muslim woman in music, Shah’s post punk insights make her one of the most unique and vital British artists performing today.

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 is back for another year of unique shows and unforgettable music moments, for the 7th year.

Last year continued the tradition of must-see experiences that has seen The Rolling Stones return to Hyde Park, Carole King play her classic album ‘Tapestry’ in full for the first time ever, comebacks for The Strokes and The LibertinesStevie Wonder play Songs in The Key Of Life and many more.

2018 saw amazing days and nights with Roger WatersBruno MarsMichael BubleThe CureEric Clapton and Paul Simon’s last ever UK concert.

Headliners for 2019 are: Celine Dion (5th July), Barbra Streisand (7th July), and Florence + The Machine The National (13th July) and Robbie Williams (14th July).

Barbra Streisand announced as next British Summer Time Hyde Park headliner

Barbra Streisand announced as next British Summer Time Hyde Park headliner

Barbra Streisand announced as next British Summer Time Hyde Park headliner

Year after year, Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park brings the greatest artists to the stage in Hyde Park. This year, a true icon, pioneer and one of the most important artists of the last half-century will make her BST Hyde Park debut – Barbra Streisand

Known for her hit songs – ‘Guilty’, ‘Woman In Love’, ‘The Way We Were’, ‘No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)’, ‘Rain On My Parade’ and many more – Streisand is the epitome of original. She is just as famous for her hit film career, her activism and theatre stardom. She has won 2 Oscars, 10 Grammys (including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award), 5 Emmys, the Special Tony Award, American Film Institute Award, Kennedy Center Honors Prize, 4 Peabody Awards, the Presidential Medal Of Freedom and 9 Golden Globes.

In 1977, Streisand became the first female composer to win a best song Oscar for ‘Evergreen’ from “A Star Is Born”. The iconic film was most recently remade by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, which Streisand has shown great admiration for. 

Streisand has never forgotten her roots. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she struggled briefly as an actress and nightclub singer in New York during the early 60s before she shot to stardom on Broadway. She made a historic homecoming to Brooklyn in 2012 and again in 2016.

Last year she released Walls, her first set of original songs since 2005 and a comment on President Trump’s America.  The Guardian called it, “a fearless riposte to the White House.” The Independent commented, “Streisand lets loose her still resplendent voice, enunciating each word with such fervour that you can’t help but be swept up in her righteous indignation.”

Streisand has also worked with fellow BST headliner Celine Dion, as well as Ray Charles, Donna Summer, Neil Diamond and many more. She has had Number 1 albums in each of the last six decades – the greatest longevity for any solo recording artist with 11 US Number 1 albums, 6 in the UK and is simply one of the best loved and most decorated artists in any medium alive today. Now one of the world’s biggest stars will light up Hyde Park to bring the first sensational weekend to a close. 

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 is back for another year of unique shows and unforgettable music moments, for the 7th year.

Already announced for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 are Celine Dion (5th July), Florence and the Machine (13th July) and Robbie Williams (14th July). 

Last year continued the tradition of must-see experiences that have previously included The Rolling Stones return to Hyde Park,Carole King play her classic album Tapestry in full for the first time ever, comebacks for The Strokes and The LibertinesStevie Wonder playSongs in The Key Of Life and many more.

2018 saw amazing days and nights with Roger WatersBruno MarsMichael BubléThe CureEric Clapton and Paul Simon’s last ever UK concert. 

James King, Senior Vice President, AEG Presents, comments:
“Barbra Streisand is without question one of the most influential and decorated artists in history. She is a global icon and a pioneer across the entire entertainment industry. It is an honour to have an artist of her stature performing at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park.”

Daniel Mathieson, Head of Experiential Marketing and Partnerships for Barclaycard, says:
“We are really looking forward to the super talented Barbra Streisand headlining this year. With a career spanning six decades, she has achieved major success in multiple fields of entertainment and we are honoured to have her perform on The Great Oak Stage this Summer. I cannot wait to hear some of her classics at an ‘ever-green’ Hyde Park as we all reminisce back to a time – when a true star was born!”

Alun Mainwaring, Head of Events and Filming at The Royal Parks, says
“Barbra Streisand is one of the best-selling recording artists of all time and so we are incredibly excited that she will be performing on the Great Oak Stage in Hyde Park this summer. Streisand will be joining a line-up of some of the world’s best vocalists including Celine Dion, Florence and the Machine and Robbie Williams. As a charity, these events are vital to The Royal Parks to provide the funds required to help maintain these beautiful London parks.”

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis Remastered and Released on Vinyl for the First Time

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis Remastered and Released on Vinyl for the First Time

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis Remastered and Released on Vinyl for the First Time

The beautiful, brooding and haunting Original Soundtrack to ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’ will be released for the first time on vinyl on 19th April by Mute / BMG. 

This is the second in a line of remastered Nick Cave and Warren Ellis film soundtracks released on vinyl.

Charting the lives of gunslinger Jesse James (played by Brad Pitt) and the jealous Robert Ford (Casey Affleck), who plots to kill him, the music ranges from soft folk piano, strings and guitar (‘Cowgirl’) to achingly melodic piano and violin (‘What Must Be Done’). Often understated but always affecting, the music follows the director Andrew Dominik’s film from its dreamlike opening, through the gang’s adventures, to the mournful conclusion.

The score was the second collaboration for film between Cave and Ellis, a member of The Bad Seeds and Grinderman, as well as the frontman of instrumental rock trio The Dirty Three. They have since created soundtracks to ‘Dias de Gracia’, ‘Lawless’, ‘Loin des Hommes’, ‘Hell Or High Water’, ‘Wind River’ and ‘Kings’.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD ANNOUNCES UK HEADLINE ARENA TOUR

Multi-platinum superstar and seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner Carrie Underwood has announced a major UK arena tour for Summer 2019, The Cry Pretty Tour UK, following the release of her acclaimed sixth studio album Cry Pretty. Underwood made the announcement this morning in a personal video to her fans:

https://www.instagram.com/p/BulIL3hlQ-P/

She will be joined on tour by special guests, The Shires, the biggest selling UK country act of all time.

Underwood has made numerous visits to the UK over the course of her career. She helped establish UK and Ireland’s Country To Country Festival, the biggest celebration of country music outside North America, with headline performances during its first year in 2013, and again during its fourth year in 2016, which included a sold-out show at London’s O2 Arena.  Underwood’s first UK concert performance included a sold-out night at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall in 2012.

Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television, and film. Carrie has amassed over 100 major honors, sold 64 million records worldwide, and recorded 26 #1 singles, 13 of which she co-wrote, with a catalog of songs that has been streamed nearly 3 billion times worldwide. 

Carrie’s latest album Cry Pretty debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Country Album Charts and was the biggest all-genre debut by a female in 2018. The debut earned Underwood a place in music history as the only woman to land four country albums at the top of the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, as well as the first female country act to top the Billboard Artist 100 Chart.  The critically-acclaimed, US gold-certified album, was the best-selling Country album debut of 2018, as well as the biggest Country album debut since 2015 and the biggest female Country album debut since 2012. The album’s lead single and title track, “Cry Pretty” was released in April 2018 and debuted as the #1 song in the U.S. all-genres chart. The song also topped download charts in 38 countries around the world and amassed over 3.5 billion social impressions across 66 countries during its first week.  

Carrie Underwood’s accolades are nothing short of incredible. She is the first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year.  In addition to seven GRAMMY® awards, she has won seven CMA Awards, 18 CMT Music Awards, 13 American Music Awards and numerous other awards and honours.  She also took home her 14th career ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year for “The Fighter,” her collaboration with Keith Urban. 

Carrie Underwood was also recognized by Pollstar as the top female country touring artist for each of her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, 2012 and for 2016’s “The Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round.”  Carrie topped Billboard’s Top 25 Tours of 2016 as the leading female country artist and was the leading female artist on Country Aircheck’s top country radio performers list for her success in both 2015 and 2016. Her first five studio albums, Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, Blown Away and Storyteller – are certified Platinum or multi-Platinum, each winning an American Music Award as Favorite Country Album and tallying an incredible 40 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.  

Last Spring, Carrie celebrated her 10th anniversary as a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry, and she returned in the Fall for her sixth season as the voice of primetime television’s #1 program, Sunday Night Football.  In November 2018, Carrie and Brad Paisley co-hosted the CMA Awards for the 11th consecutive year.

Carrie Underwood will be performing in arenas across the U.S. and Canada before heading to the UK this summer. Tickets go on sale Thursday 7th March at 9:00 am via www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk. Underwood has arranged for a donation of £1 from each ticket sold for The Cry Pretty Tour UK to be contributed to Danita’s Children, which provides a safe haven for abandoned and vulnerable children in Haiti, while encouraging families to stay together through their education and malnutrition programs.

Also beginning Thursday 7th March, a limited number of exclusive VIP Packages will be available at www.sjm-vip.com which include an amazing selection of tickets, Meet & Greet, autographed memorabilia, and custom merchandise.

The biggest selling UK country act of all time, The Shires will join Underwood on her UK arena tour this Summer. The duo released their debut album Brave in March 2015, which became the first British country album ever to enter the UK top ten. Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes have been going from strength-to-strength ever since, and released their highly anticipated third album Accidentally on Purpose earlier last year.

DECCA RECORDS CELEBRATES ITS 90th ANNIVERSARY

DECCA RECORDS CELEBRATES ITS 90th ANNIVERSARY

DECCA RECORDS CELEBRATES ITS
90th ANNIVERSARY

This year sees one of the most iconic record labels in the world, Decca Records, turn 90 years old. Since its formation, on 28 February 1929, Decca has burgeoned from a prosperous British company to a fully-fledged international powerhouse – quickly earning the title as ‘The Supreme Record Company’ – a statement that resonates stronger than ever 90 years on.

Decca has been the home to countless legendary musicians from Luciano Pavarotti to David BowieDame Vera Lynn to Bing CrosbyTom Jones to Billie HolidayThe Rolling Stones to Mantovani and is now providing the platform for a new generation of ambitious artists at the forefront of their scenes – names such as Andrea BocelliSheku Kanneh-Mason and Gregory Porter, who continue to represent the label’s cultural legacy.

Throughout 2019, Decca will be celebrating its nine decades of excellence with a number of special releases, events, concerts and more taking place across Europe. After kicking off with sensational events in Paris and Berlin earlier this week, Decca continued the celebrations last night at London’s White City House, as the historic label officially launched its year-long 90th anniversary, with help from some of the label’s most famous faces. The room was brought to a standstill by the spectacular performances from Decca signees Fieh, Jess Gillam, J.S. Ondara and Imelda May, and the evening also featured an emphatic speech from Decca President, Rebecca Allen who said, “Decca is nothing without the fantastic musicians we work with, so I’d like to thank them. Our artists are not always conforming, we don’t follow trends – that’s what makes us such an interesting label.” A number of high-profile names from the music industry and beyond were in attendance, including: Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Katherine Jenkins, Milos, Nicola Benedetti, Cerys Matthews, Michel Ball and more.

Decca will also be marking the occasion with:

  • The Supreme Record Company: The Story Of Decca Records 1929-2019 Book: A lavishly illustrated, first comprehensive history of the label.
     
  • Pavarotti Feature Film: A milestone full-length documentary directed by Ron Howard telling the true story of Decca’s global superstar.
  • V&A Event: London’s prestigious V&A opens its doors to Decca on Sunday 5th May (as part of the V&A Performance Festival 2019) for a day of family fun and music.
     
  • A Return to Decca’s Lost Recording Studio: Decca’s West Hampstead studios, a hidden historical gem, will open again in July for just a few nights, offering an array of different activities, from one-off performances to unseen artworks and exhibitions.
     
  • Reissues and Rarities: 90 physical and digital releases that embrace the spirit of the label. The first Friday of every month for the whole of 2019 will be ‘Decca Day’ with a new release.
     
  • Performances: A unique series of concerts in London, Berlin and Paris to continue throughout 2019. Decca 90 will also be celebrated at key UK arts and music festivals such as Love Supreme, all four Cheltenham events and Village Green.
     
  • Record Store Day 2019 (13 April): A series of exclusive vinyl releases for this global celebration of independent record shops.
     
  • Rare David Bowie Videos: Six Deram-era clips restored to 1080 HD by the UMC team to be released monthly from 8 March.
     
  • Radio: Two programmes on BBC Radio 2 (available globally on the BBC Sounds app) that chart 20 of the most iconic Decca recordings of all time.
     
  • Podcasts: 45 unique 90-second podcasts – 45 RPM (Recorded Podcast Moments) that outline key aspects of the label’s history, to appear on www.decca90.com.   

Decca has always been more than just a label: it was also a major innovator in recorded sound – its name originates from the Decca Dulcephone portable gramophone, one of the first of its kind, and the label’s revolutionary work in developing radar with the Decca Navigator System had a significant impact during the Second World War.

When Decca took the giant steps forward in recorded sound post-war, it ushered in a truly golden era for classical music. Decca created by far the finest opera catalogue the record world has ever seen, thanks to the contributions of such wonderful singers as Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland, and large-scale projects like the first complete Ring cycle. As Decca turns 90, the label is also celebrating major milestones for some of its most distinguished artists: Renée Fleming approaches 25 years on Decca; Cecilia Bartoli reaches 30 years; and Riccardo Chailly celebrates an incredible 40 years. These long-lasting relationships are testament to the label’s dedication and ongoing support for its artists. This commitment continues with the present generation of top classical stars including Nicola BenedettiMiloš KaradaglićJess Gillam and Sheku Kanneh-Mason.

The label’s legacy for spoken word, poetry and comedy records is unsurpassed, for example its recordings with Spike Milligan. Other Decca pioneers such as Sister Rosetta TharpeBill HaleyTommy SteeleThe GoonsBenjamin BrittenPeter Cook and Dudley Moore and bandleader Ted Heath all paved the way for future generations in their respective fields.

Now, in the 21st century, Decca continues to go from strength to strength. Last year alone, the label had No.1 albums with Rod Stewart and Andrea Bocelli, helped teenage cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason sell 100,000 albums worldwide, was home to the winner of the Country Music Association’s Album Of The Year with Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Golden Hour’, assisted Buddy Holly’s return to the UK Top 10, and saw Hollywood superstar Jeff Goldblum top the UK Jazz Charts with his debut record.

Part of Universal Music Group, Decca is not only home to some of the world’s biggest and best acts in music, but has served as the official label partner to three Royal Weddings, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics.

“Decca Records has been the soundtrack to many historical and cultural moments, a truly unique brand with a truly unique identity,” reflects Decca president, Rebecca Allen“Even now, as we celebrate our 90th anniversary, we continue to push the boundaries; to seek out artists who are distinctive, who stand out from the crowd, artists that will continue to define our label for the next nine decades.”

Back in the summer of 1929, a national advert in Melody Maker magazine issued the following prediction about a fledgling label: “All record lovers will be talking about Decca Records”. Fast forward to 2019 and people are still talking about Decca as it now celebrates its 90th anniversary.

Bang Bang Romeo announce first ever vinyl release for Record Store Day

Bang Bang Romeo announce first ever vinyl release for Record Store Day

Bang Bang Romeo announce first ever vinyl release for Record Store Day

Yorkshire’s hotly tipped trio Bang Bang Romeo are excited to get their first physical release this Record Store Day (13th April) with a special vinyl version of ‘Cemetery’. Announcing this week off the back of a completely sold out debut headline tour, the band commented on their love of physical music.

“There’s nothing more satisfying than holding a physical, beautiful, REAL version of the music you love in both hands – that version especially being vinyl – jumping on your bike and peddling back to your house to stick it on your Dad’s record player, and taking in every aspect that listening to music on vinyl has to offer. We each grew up hanging around our favourite music shops as much as we could, and our fondest memories of our favourite artists were all born there. 
We put as much heart and soul into our artwork as we do the music, for us, the visual experience is almost as important as the music itself, so it’s a real buzz for us to be releasing our own music on Vinyl for the first time.”

The band will also embark on a mini-tour throughout Record Store Day, playing live sets at four different stores, Record Junkee in Sheffield, Tallbird in Chesterfield, Jumbo in Leeds and Jacaranda in Liverpool on 13th April.  
 
Stars’ love of vinyl stems from going through her Uncle’s Record Collection when she was little, from the feel to the smell of them, to the delicate way you must place the record on the turn table and drop the pin with total respect. From that point on, she was hooked. 
 
Ross remembers the buzz around Oasis’s ‘Be Here Now’ being released and just dying for school to finish so he could jump on the bus and fly over to Track Records in Doncaster to grab it. 
 
Rich only discovered Muse because he fell in love with the cover of Showbiz, and spent all his time during school breaks at Jumbo Records in Leeds going through racks of vinyl and CDs. 

Record Store Day takes place 13th April, and the band have put together some very apt artwork for the release. The artwork features the band standing in front of a long list of British Independent record stores, including some of the bands personal favourites, Leeds’ own Jumbo and Crash Records and Doncaster’s Track Records.
 
‘Cemetery’ was written with music shopping in mind, an ode to record stores and finding your place within a music scene, the lyrics capture that excitement of going into a record store:
‘Finally found a place where I feel a part of something more ….in your arms where I found The Smiths & The Flaming Lips’ 
 
The B-side ‘Creep’ is a cover of the Radiohead breakthrough track from their 1993 album ‘Pablo Honey’. Comments front woman Stars:
We’ve adopted the timeless classic ‘Creep’ as one of our own, and sort of use it as a secret weapon. Radiohead are probably one of our favourite bands, so to play it we’re really just honouring Radiohead. Live, I also change the lyrics “I want a perfect body” to “I’ve got a sexy body” because, well, I have.”
 
Bang Bang Romeo embarked on their first headline tour in February selling out shows from London to Leeds, the band release their debut album ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide To The Galaxy‘ on 14th June 2019 via Eleven Seven Label Group. They tour stadiums across the UK and Europe supporting Brits winner P!nk in June.

Grime Ghetts virtual: MelodyVR and Ghetts join forces

Grime Ghetts virtual: MelodyVR and Ghetts join forces

Grime Ghetts virtual: MelodyVR and Ghetts join forces

MelodyVR, the leading music Virtual Reality platform and grime artist Ghetts have partnered to allows fans to immerse themselves in two events around Ghetts’ most recent album Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament.

As well as a VR recording of a sold out show at London’s Jazz Café, which features guest appearances from grime royalty like Chip and Wretch 32, the app offers a private tour around an exhibition of personal, politically charged artwork from Ghetto Gospel. Ghetts personally guides viewers around the ‘Ghettsibition’, which took place at Kachette in East London and was only open for two days to a very select few. Through the hook up with MelodyVR many more fans can now experience the impact and excitement of the ‘Ghettsibition’

Ghetts occupies a revered position in grime as one of most influential MCs of the genre’s first wave, and is the first artist from the scene to work with MelodyVR. The critically acclaimed Ghetto Gospel, released in September last year, saw him combine his signature rapid-fire flow with nuanced lyrics that took in feminism, racial identity and economic marginalisation.

Ghetts said: “When we were planning ‘Ghettsitbition’, I knew I wanted as many people as possible to understand the story behind the album and the artwork. Filming the exhibition and my show at The Jazz Café in with MelodyVR allows me to take viewers on a personal journal like no other platform can. Being able to immerse yourself in a single moment in time, wherever you are and whoever you are, is something really special.”

MelodyVR will also be releasing a recording of Gorgon City performance at Boardmasters Festival, allowing viewers to enjoy the duo’s unique brand of infectious house with the added atmosphere of a festival crowd.

As the only licensed VR music platform, MelodyVR has partnerships across the industry, including major and independent labels, publishers and venues, and has teamed up with a huge array of international artists to build the world’s largest library of immersive and interactive virtual reality music experiences.

The MelodyVR app is available on Oculus Go and GearVR devices, offering more music fans than ever the chance to be transported all over the world to sold-out shows, far-flung festivals and exclusive VIP sessions, and experience the music they love in new ways.

BLUE RAINCOAT SONGS BOLSTERS PUBLISHING ROSTER WITH RAFT OF NEW TALENT

BLUE RAINCOAT SONGS BOLSTERS PUBLISHING ROSTER WITH RAFT OF NEW TALENT

Blue Raincoat Songs, the publishing arm of Blue Raincoat Music has signed three new artists on a global basis to their ever expanding roster

Joining eminent artists that include Let’s Eat Grandma, The Wandering Hearts, Nerina Pallot and William The Conqueror are:

BODEGA – A five piece band from Brooklyn they released their debut album “Endless Scroll” on the independent label What’s Your Rupture last year to huge critical acclaim and are already playing sold out shows at the likes of the Scala and recently undertook their third UK and European tour. This year will see a follow up release as well as further European dates and festivals in the summer. The band have been variously described as art rock and post punk and everything in between with influences ranging from The Velvet Underground, Television, Talking Heads and the B-52’s.

BEN DE VRIES – Ben is a writer/producer/arranger/performer who creates brilliant sonic soundscapes. He has worked with David Gray on his new record, co-producing the album and co-writing four tracks and is now a member of Gray’s touring band. Ben also has his own band Lunacre, for whom he is the writer and singer.

SELF ESTEEM – Self Esteem is the musical alter ego of Rebecca Taylor, former front woman in indie band Slow Club, who released five albums on Moshi and then Caroline Records between 2009-2016. Self Esteem is a very different musical proposition – big, bright, sassy pop songs undercut with acidic, biting lyrics and always laced with a strong sense of humour and irony. The album “Compliments please” is released on Fiction Records on March 1st

Jeremy Lascelles, CEO Blue Raincoat Music said, “ All three of these artists – Bodega, Rebecca and Ben – are creating brilliant, thrilling music of very varying styles. Our taste at BRS is pretty eclectic, but individuality and

a clear vision of who they are creatively is a pretty common theme amongst all of our signings. We are very excited to welcome all three to the Blue Raincoat family.”

Blue Raincoat Songs was founded by some of the most heavyweight figures in the business and is part of the Blue Raincoat Music Group of Companies, led by Jeremy Lascelles and legendary producer Robin Millar, with the backing of Chris Wright and former Virgin Entertainment Chairman Robert Devereux. Their stated aim is to bring back the true spirit of independent music to the industry.

MORRISSEY ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM ‘CALIFORNIA SON’

MORRISSEY ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM ‘CALIFORNIA SON’

MORRISSEY ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM ‘CALIFORNIA SON’

Morrissey has unveiled the artwork for new album ‘California Son’ and announced the record will be released on 24th May.
 
Released via Morrissey’s label Etienne, an imprint of BMG, the track list consists of a diverse variety of tracks from the ‘60’s and ‘70’s hand picked by Morrissey himself.

Flexing his vocal muscles to pop, glam rock and folk, on this album Morrissey has even finally become a protest singer taking on Dylan and Phil Ochs. His distinct baritone vocal naturally makes each of these songs quintessentially his own whilst staying true to the originals. It’s clear Morrissey’s voice is stronger than ever as the influential singer looks back on the songs that shaped and influenced him.

‘California Son’ has been produced by Joe Chiccarelli and is formed of 12 brand new cover tracks. The first track to be released is a cover of Roy Orbison’s ‘It’s Over’ with additional vocals by LP, the American singer who herself is a revered songwriter. ‘It’s Over’ was written at the height of Orbison’s fame and became an instant hit in 1964 topping the charts in the UK. With Orbison famed for his soaring falsetto, and soul bearing lyrics it’s easy to see how The Big O laid the foundation for shaping a young Morrissey.
 
Comments Roy Orbison’s son, Roy Jnr:
“We love Morrissey! Morrissey’s hair, and melancholy and poetic lyrics always reminded me of my Dad. His version of “It’s Over” is great.” 
– Roy Orbison, Jr.
 
LP comments:
When I would think of Morrisey and his music it was always with great respect and appreciation as I’m sure is the case with many of his fans. However, I soon realized when I hung out with him and he played me all the songs he was putting on this record that behind this was the heart of an audiophile and a deep fan of his own musical heroes. He is well versed in so many genres and knows deep cuts of artists I thought I knew so much about. It is inspiring to see the enthusiasm and intellect he brings to people through his own musical journey. – LP
 
This track with LP isn’t the only collaboration; additional vocals on the album come from Green Day frontman Billie John Armstrong on Laura Nyro track ‘Wedding Bell Blues’, additional vocals on the album also come from Ed Droost, Ariel Engle, Sameer Gadhia, Lydia Night
 
2018 marked 30 years of Morrissey as a celebrated independent solo artist and 2019 promises to be an exciting year for Morrissey, as well as a new album he also embarks on a Canadian tour, his first in almost 20 years.
 
Tracklist:
1. Morning Starship (Jobriath) with Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear
2. Don’t Interrupt The Sorrow (Joni Mitchell) with Ariel Engle of Broken Social Scene
3. Only a Pawn In Their Game (Bob Dylan) with Petra Haden
4. Suffer the Little Children (Buffy St Marie) 
5. Days of Decision (Phil Ochs) with Sameer Gadhia of Young The Giant
6. It’s Over (Roy Orbison) with LP
7. Wedding Bell Blues (The Fifth Dimension) with Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day & Lydia Night of The Regrettes
8. Loneliness Remembers What Happiness Forgets (Dionne Warwick)
9. Lady Willpower (Gary Puckett)
10. When You Close Your Eyes (Carly Simon) with Petra Haden
11. Lenny’s Tune (Tim Hardin)

GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS PRESENTS THE DEBUT SINGLE “I SAY NO” FROM “HEATHERS” ORIGINAL WEST END CAST RECORDING

GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS has announced the release of “I Say No,the first single from the upcoming album Heathers the Musical – Original West End Cast Recording, for digital download and streaming today, Friday, February 15, along with an accompanying music video.

Based on last year’s hit West End production, this single continues an exciting journey which took Heathers from the 1988 cult classic film, to a landmark New York stage production in 2014. That led to its premiere cast album, which became a viral hit and went on to become the best-selling non-Broadway American cast recording of the decade. The full version of Heathers the Musical – Original West End Cast Recording will be released on Friday, March 1. Customers who pre-order the digital album will immediately receive a download of the new single “I Say No. To pre-order the album, please visit HERE.

The video is available HERE.

The show’s London stars Carrie Hope Fletcher and Jamie Muscato – who played Veronica Sawyer and Jason “J.D.” Dean, the characters made famous by Winona Ryder and Christian Slater – are featured on the song and in the music video. Writers Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe joined forces with producer Michael Croiter (Heathers: The Musical (World Premiere Cast Recording), Matilda, Groundhog Day) at Livingston Studio and Abbey Road Studios to recreate the musical performance.

Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe said, “‘I Say No’ is an emancipation anthem in which Veronica cuts ties with her homicidal boyfriend. Andrew Lloyd Webber, one of the show’s lead producers, suggested we give her an eleven o’clock number to establish her moral clarity by firmly articulating the idea that violence is never a solution to the injustices of high school.”

Heathers the Musical – based on one of the most iconic teen films of all time: Heathers, the 1988 cult classic – closed in November 2018 after a successful five-month run at Royal Haymarket Theatre, London. The hit musical adaptation by the award-winning writing team Laurence O’Keefe (Legally BlondeBat Boy) and Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”) has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and finally arrived in the UK for its European premiere in June 2018, following a rapturous response to its 2017 workshop at The Other Palace. The production moved to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a West End run in Autumn 2018.

Kurt Deutsch, the label’s founder, comments “I am thrilled to be working with the Heathers UK family and be reunited with Larry and Kevin after recording Legally Blonde and Reefer Madness. Heathers is great fun and we’re happy to preview the West End cast recording with this wonderful new song.”

Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall - Doves supports announced

Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall are proud to announce two very special guests for Doves on 29th March.

Influential Wirral five-piece, The Coral will be performing tracks from their critically acclaimed new album ‘Move Through The Dawn’ and a selection of their greatest hits.

The follow-up to 2016’s ‘Distance Inbetween’, ‘Move Through The Dawn’ is an album filled with perfectly crafted songs, melodic and hopeful. In true Coral fashion it is also eccentric; informed by 60s and 70s music but very much with its own character. The album includes the singles ‘Reaching Out For A Friend, ‘Sweet Release’, and ‘Eyes Like Pearls’.

Since their debut EP release in 2001 The Coral have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003’s chart-topping ‘Magic and Medicine’. Their eight Top 40 singles include ‘Dreaming Of You’, ‘In The Morning’, ‘Pass It On’, and ‘Don’t Think You’re The First’.

The Fernweh are three musicians, Jamie Backhouse, Ned Crowther and Austin Murphy, with a shared love of British folk and psychedelia. Their paths had crossed in various bands (The Zutons, Candie Payne, Smokey Angle Shades, 747s, The Stairs, Edgar Jones and The Joneses, Alessi’s Ark) with gilded reputations as prolific and gifted ‘side men’.

Their debut album, dubbed a ‘new lost classic’ (Q Magazine) was released in November 2018 and channels Anne Briggs, Frederick Delius, Basil Kirchin, Oliver Postgate, The Zombies, Barry Hines, Fairport Convention and Joy Division.

Doves, the legendary three-piece band from Manchester, announced their long awaited return late last year. Celebrated for Mercury-nominated albums, Lost Souls and The Last Broadcast alongside hit singles There Goes The Fear, Pounding and Black And White Town, Doves sound tracked the lives of a generation of fans left waiting patiently for their reappearance.  The wait is over as the band, composed of twin brothers Jez Williams (guitar, vocals) and Andy Williams (drums, vocals), and Jimi Goodwin (bass, vocals, guitar), make a re-energised return to the Royal Albert Hall next March.

They last played together at the Manchester Warehouse Project in October 2010.
After supporting each of their four, top-ten albums on the road and being affixed to festival main stages for close to a decade, Doves declared a ‘time out’ to pursue other experiments in sound – yet remained connected by their friendship of over thirty years.

After calling time on their hiatus, Doves embraced the invitation of Roger Daltrey CBE to take the stage for Teenage Cancer Trust, having previously supported the charity with a full, 17-song headline set in 2003.

Completing the headliners for the remaining nights are; Rudimental, An Evening Of Comedy with Kevin Bridges, Tom Grennan, Take That, The Script and Levellers.

Money raised by these shows supports Teenage Cancer Trust, the only charity dedicated to making sure young people diagnosed with cancer get the expert treatment and personalised support they need.

Legendary frontman of The Who, Roger Daltrey CBE has been the driving force behind Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert Hall concerts since they began in 2000 and is an honorary patron for the charity.  These incredible shows have played a vital role in helping the charity to provide 28 specialist cancer units and over 60 nursing and support staff in NHS hospitals across the UK, making an incredible difference to young people diagnosed with cancer.

2019’s impressive line-up adds to an extraordinary legacy that has seen unique, once in a lifetime performances like Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn performing together for the first time ever in 2013, Sir Paul McCartney in 2012, plus everyone from Muse to The Cure, Tinie Tempah, Florence + The Machine, Ed Sheeran, Kasabian, Stereophonics, Paul Weller, Olly Murs, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Sir Tom Jones and many more. And, of course, some of the greatest concerts of the past 20 years from The Who.

This year’s shows are generously supported by sponsors Tangle Teezer and American Airlines.

Further incredible support is provided by media partners Absolute Radio and Metro.

KEVIN BRIDGES HOSTS AN EVENING OF COMEDY FOR THE TEENAGE CANCER TRUST AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL

An Evening of Comedy for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall returns for the event’s 19th year and is set to be another special one. As well as welcoming some of the UK’s biggest music stars, Teenage Cancer Trust also welcomes some of Britain’s best-loved comedians for an evening jampacked with laughter.

We are delighted to reveal that, long term supporter of Teenage Cancer Trust and one of the charity’s official ambassadors, Kevin Bridges returns as this year’s host and will guide the audience through an exciting evening of comedy, continuing the long tradition of the cream of British comedy joining forces for a unique and unforgettable night of laughs.

Joining Kevin for a night of laughter are British comedy heavyweights: John Bishop, Kerry Godliman, Romesh Ranganathan and Tommy Tiernan.

Since 2000, numerous well-known comedians have performed for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall raising almost £30 million for young people with cancer. Money raised by these shows supports Teenage Cancer Trust, the only charity dedicated to making sure young people diagnosed with cancer get the expert treatment and personalised support they need.

These incredible shows have played a vital role in helping the charity to provide 28 specialist cancer units and over 60 nursing and support staff in NHS hospitals across the UK, making an incredible difference to young people diagnosed with cancer.

Kevin Bridges is a committed Teenage Cancer Trust Ambassador and Regional Patron for the West of Scotland and last performed the comedy night of Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall in 2017. Bridges cemented his position as one of the UK’s most successful comedians last year when he was crowned the UK’s Ticket of the Year 2018 at the SSE Hydro by Ticketmaster fans – a remarkable feat given that no comedian has ever taken the top spot in the UK before. Bridges’ recent sold out tour earned him the Gie It Laldy award from the Glasgow arena, recognising his contribution to the live event industry, having sold more tickets than any other solo artist. His tour was record breaking, selling out 19 nights at Glasgow SSE Hydro arena.

He is also a well-known face on many television panel shows such as Would I Lie to You?, Have I Got News for You and has performed on Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, as well as having his own television series Kevin Bridges: What’s the Story? 

Kevin Bridges said of hosting An Evening of Comedy and the Teenage Cancer Trust:The fantastic work Teenage Cancer Trust have done over the years to provide specialist care and support to young people with cancer across the UK is incredible and it is a great honour to be asked to return to host the comedy night at The Royal Albert Hall.

Having performed in 2011, 2014 and 2016, the Teenage Cancer Trust is thrilled to have the incredible John Bishop return to this year’s comedy stage. John has performed numerous sell out stand-up UK arena tours, as well as achieving huge success with a number of his own comedy, entertainment and documentary shows including BBC’s John Bishop’s Britain, The John Bishop Christmas Show, John Bishop’s Gorilla Adventure and John Bishop: In Conversation With…

Other TV work includes John’s one-off special for Sport Relief, John Bishop’s Week Of Hell, a stint as team captain on Sky One’s A League of their Own and his guest appearances on Live at the Apollo. John took the reins as director and star of his own comedy drama for Sky One’s Little Crackers season.  His other acting work includes working with director Ken Loach in the thriller Route Irish, Jimmy McGovern’s critically acclaimed Accused and ITV1’s Fearless. 

Charmingly, straight-talking, quick-witted Kerry Godliman will also be taking to the Royal Albert Hall stage. She is both an incredibly talented comedian and a phenomenal actor. Kerry is best known for her appearances on BBC’s Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Jack Dee’s Referendum HelpDesk, Celebrity Pointless and Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats and BBC’s Celebrity Pointless. Kerry is also a regular on Radio 4 with appearances on the esteemed News Quiz, The Now Show and Just AMinute as well as her own series Kerry’s List.

Kerry’s acting talents have seen her receive critical acclaim for her role as Hannah in Ricky Gervais’ hit series Derek for Channel 4, ITV1’s Bad Movewhere she plays Nicky, as well as starring in the Netflix feature filmMascots and Sky’s Carter’s Get Rich and Save Me. She has also starred in Crackanory, Him And Her, Miranda, Getting On, Extras, Home Time, Our Girl and Channel 4’s Spoons, also appearing in several stage plays including England People Very Nice at the National Theatre.

The last few years have been incredible for Romesh Ranganathan with two series of his BAFTA and RTS Nominated series Asian Provocateur, his BBC Two series The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan and his own Sky One sitcom The Reluctant Landlord all receiving critical acclaim and making him a household name. 2018 also saw Romesh become the new regular on A League Of Their Own, take on a new role as Judge Romesh for Dave and even managed to squeeze in writing his autobiography Straight Outta Crawley: The Memoirs Of A Distinctly Average Human Being which became a Sunday Times Bestseller.

Romesh will be back on tour in the autumn with his new show The Cynic’s Mixtape and tickets have already sold out at several venues.  This follows the success of his debut tour in 2016, Irrational, which sold over 100,000 tickets and resulted in him being awarded the Ents24 Hardest Working Comedian Of The Year.  The DVD/Digital release of the show is still flying high in the comedy charts with the highest sales of a debut in recent years.

It has been non-stop for one of the industry’s hardest working comedians. Last year also saw Romesh embarked on his career in America with the launch of his own series Just Another Immigranton Showtime which received critical acclaim selling across the globe and is currently airing on Sky One in the UK.  His time in America saw him appear twice on James Corden’s Late Late Show and debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Tommy Tiernan has been working as a stand-up comedian for the past twenty three years. He currently moonlights as a chat show host and newspaper columnist. A fearless force of energy, Tiernan is inspiring, and one of the few comics to take his audience on a genuine emotional journey elevating the soul through rich, honest laughs. Tiernan has an instinctive way of crafting words to bring his anecdotes to vivid life and make the jokes truly resonate. Performances are high intensity, high octane, a no holds barred roller coaster ride as Tommy continues his constant interrogation of the big ideas – Sex, Religion, Family through the lens of his quirks, personal demons and sense of outrage. Some TV credits include: Channel 4’s Derry Girls, Dave Allen at Peace, The Tommy Tiernan Show on RTE and Father Ted.

2019’s impressive line-up adds to an extraordinary legacy that has seen unique, once in a lifetime comedic performances from the likes of Jo Brand, Russell Howard and Michael McIntyre.

As well as welcoming comedy’s finest, Teenage Cancer Trust also brings you some of Britain’s biggest music stars: Rudimental and special guestskick things off at the Royal Albert Hall with their emphatic. hi-energy live show on Monday 25th March, Tom Grennan will perform for the first time on March 27th, followed by one of the most successful bands in British chart history, Take That, on 28th March.

Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall was conceived and curated by the charity’s Honorary Patron Roger Daltrey CBE, the legendary frontman of The Who, and he still plays a vital role in making the shows, the charity’s flagship event, happen.

This year’s shows are generously supported by sponsors Tangle Teezer and American Airlines.

Y Not Festival returns with the UK’s biggest indie line-up of 2019, featuring rising stars alongside a range of musical icons.

 

Crossing the Peaks to kick things off are local legends, Elbow. The critically-lauded Mancunian band, lead by frontman Guy Garvey, are known for their beautifully soaring anthems such as ‘One Day Like This’. With an array of hits; new and old you’ll be singing along with an entire crowd for this one.

 

Irish indie trio Two Door Cinema Club have some unfinished business for Y Not Festival. As returning headliners, they’re bringing their A-game this summer and some brand new bangers along the way.

Returning to the spotlight – rock heroes Foals will be finishing an unbelievable weekend of music, choosing Y Not to play as part of their limited run of UK shows in 2019. This year sees them release two albums, with the first arriving on March 8th and part 2 in the autumn. ‘Exits’, the first single from their upcoming twin albums, Everything Saved Will Not Be Lost.

Then there’s indie royalty in the form of Franz Ferdinand, ever-evolving pop-punk heroes You Me At Six, Salford legends Happy Mondays and band of the hour, IDLES. They are joined by White Lies, Gerry Cinnamon, Miles Kane, The Hunna and many more to round out the biggest UK indie-rock line-up of the year.

 

2019 line up (more to be announced): Elbow, Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, Wolf Alice, Franz Ferdinand, You Me At Six, Don Broco, Happy Mondays, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Hunna, Miles Kane, Gerry Cinnamon, IDLES, Dermot Kennedy, White Lies (Thursday headliner), Kate Nash, The Pigeon Detectives, Rat Boy, The Damned, Professor Green, Mahalia, The Subways, Lucy Rose, The Rifles, The Big Moon, Sunflower Bean, Sea Girls, Skinny Lister, Black Honey, Ten Tonnes, Fontaines D.C., Ade Suleiman, Easy Life, Sports Team, Samm Henshaw, Cassia, Indoor Pets, Laurel, Arkells, Demob Happy, Anteros, Lucia, Puppy, Orchards, The Snuts, Pip Blom, Fangclub, Only the Poets, The Murder Capital, Deco, Sophie and the Giants, Casey Lowry, Zuzu, Fuzzy Sun, Bitch Falcon, Hotel Lux, Baba Naga, Age of L.U.N.A, Twisted Wheel, Larkins, Glass Caves, The Hubbards, The Reytons, Kashmere, Raised By Owls, Dancehall, Spun, Dirty Little Liars, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys, and Mr Motivator.

 

Y Not organisers have said “After an amazing 2018 festival, we’re so happy to have a 2019 line-up bursting at the seams. We’ve got a huge mix of new and old faces to the Derbyshire Dales, with massive returns from classic bands such as White Lies, plus the huge welcomes to the UK’s hottest emerging stars like Idles and Mahalia. Not forgetting 3 huge headliners.

 

Back for its 14th year this summer, Y Not will take place in Pikehall, Derbyshire from 25th-28th July. Since 2005 Y Not Festival began life as an over-spilling house party in deepest Derbyshire. With panoramic countryside views, a fully stocked bar of local ales, a mouth-watering selection of food and more live music than you can shake a stick at…Y Not has all bases covered.

New Names Added To Bring Me The Horizon All Points East Festival Date

All Points East have added four acts to the previously announced Bring Me The Horizon headline show.  The band who this week achieved chart success, scoring their first number one album with new record ‘Amo’ have curated their own day at the Festival to be held in London’s Victoria Park. Architects, While She Sleeps, Employed To Serve and Alice Glass have all been added.

Commented Bring Me The Horizon “We are extremely excited to announce the next round of acts on our very special day at all points east festival. Many of the bands are great friends of ours and we can’t wait to come together to play at Victoria Park.”

Brighton-based metallers Architects released their most recent record, late 2018’s Holy Hell, to phenomenal response. The album, which addresses the recent passing of guitarist Tom Searle, is wracked with grief, passion and a strong sense of mortality and was crowned as the group’s “finest album to date,” by the NME. Having previously performed at some of rock’s biggest events and stunning audiences at shows worldwide, both as headliners and alongside the likes of Parkway Drive and Enter Shikari, Architects have curated a live set that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Formed in 2006, While She Sleeps are no strangers to the stage. Having performed at Warped Tour, Rock im Park, UNIFY and Reading & Leeds among others, the group have rendered themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Their debut record, 2010’s ‘The North Stands For Nothing’ received critical acclaim from the likes of Kerrang and Metal Hammer, and the group have since gone on to release two more records. Their most recent offering, 2017’s ‘You Are We’, was released independently with the help of crowd funding from their fans, with the record itself described as “an album that bristles with hooks, crackles with power and almost overflows with passion.” Now, the group are set to bring that same passion and power to the stage at Victoria Park, delivering a set that will have audiences head-banging in unison. Their new single ‘THE GUILTY PARTY’ was just released and brand new album ‘SO WHAT?’ arrives 1st March. Sean Long from the band commented “The line up is clearly next level. We can’t wait to bring the Sleeps show to Victoria Park and prove we’re meant to be there.”

Feral hard-core quintet Employed To Serve have made it their mission to decimate every venue the UK and Europe throws in their path. Known for their relentless live charge, the group have made appearances at Damnation Festival, Incubate Festival, and have toured with the likes of Rolo Tomassi, Milk Teeth and Black Peaks. Their 2017 album ‘The Warmth of a Dying Sun’ was crowned Kerrang’s album of the year and boasted a heavier and darker feel than its predecessor ‘Greyer Than You Remember’, firmly establishing the groups sound and proving to be their strongest release yet.

Canadian singer and songwriter Alice Glass embarked on her solo career in 2014, breaking away from her co-founding position in electronic band Crystal Castles. Her debut solo single, ‘Stillbirth’, was released to increase awareness of domestic and sexual abuse, with all proceeds from the tracks revenue going to aid abuse victims. Following the 2017 release of her debut self-titled EP, Glass toured with Marilyn Manson. Glass has since released a string of singles and has grown to be known for her dedication to live performance, performing five months worth of shows on crutches after straining an already-injured ankle.

Taking place during All Points East’s second weekend Friday 31st May 2019, Bring Me The Horizon will be bringing an exciting diverse line-up to Victoria Park. The show will be the band’s first-ever festival headlining set and their only UK headline show for 2019.

Formed in Sheffield in 2004, Bring Me The Horizon have long been widely regarded as one of the most forward thinking heavy bands in the UK. The band released their sixth studio album ‘Amo’ on 25th January, which went straight into their first number one.

Genre defying in nature, the band have been labelled as everything from deathcore to pop-rock.  Even hailed for their electronic elements, they have been consistently on the rise since their formation, never comfortable staying in the same space for long and constantly evolving with each step of their career.

From playing the Royal Albert Hall with a live orchestra to two huge arena shows at The O2 this is a band that have always thrived on taking things up a gear. Expect big things for their first outdoor festival headline and an eclectic supporting line-up throughout the day.

Special guests come from independent hip-hop heroes Run The Jewels, the US duo that exploded onto the scene in 2013 to sudden critical acclaim. They released breakthrough album RTJ3, last year winning over UK audiences with a dynamic performance at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage introduced by none other than Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn as well as a memorable performance at Finsbury Park this year. They’ve even broken into Hollywood with their latest single, “Lets Go (The Royal We)”, included in the soundtrack for Marvel’s latest blockbuster Venom and had a Grammy nomination with Danger Mouse-produced single “Chase Me”, included on the Baby Driver soundtrack.

English alternative rock band Nothing But Thieves, have proved themselves a formidable live act touring huge arena shows with Muse and Twenty-One Pilots and selling out two consecutive nights at The Roundhouse in their own right and playing their biggest ever headline show to date at Alexandra Palace last month. They have had two official top 10s with both their studio albums.  2015’s self-titled debut album went straight in at #7 on the Official Albums Chart and last year’s follow up ‘Broken Machine’ charted at #2.

Brit-nominated IDLES, have created the soundtrack for our times with their first two albums, released only a year apart – 2017’s ‘Brutalism’ and 2018’s second album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’. The band have gained attention with their hard-hitting live performances and witty but dark lyrical content, creating punk anthems with intelligent lyrics about toxic masculinity, depression and austerity, music that is so cathartic and important it should be prescribed on the NHS.

Every artist playing on this day have proved themselves to have a tenacity and hunger setting them apart from the over saturated music scene but Scarlxrd holds the record, releasing six albums in the space of just two years. Blending trap with heavy metal and creating unusual and distinctive music and an aesthetic that takes inspiration from Japanese culture Scarlxrd truly sets himself apart from everything else out there and will kick off this energetic day – unrestricted by genre but crafted out of the most exciting modern acts of today.

Formed in Brighton in 2015, alt pop quartet Yonaka have already rocked the boat with their hip-hop fused head-banging rock. Their Grime-influenced DIY ethos and unequalled ambition has seen them catapulted from small venues at Brighton’s The Great Escape festival to signing with Atlantic Records and making waves supporting Bring Me The Horizon across the UK and Europe. Front woman Theresa Jarvis’s ferocious intensity, teamed with heavy riffs and punchy basslines, truly sets Yonaka aside as a tour de force, branding them as one of the most exciting new names in alternative music.

Jim King, Senior Vice President, AEG Presents commented “We are beyond thrilled to be able to welcome Bring Me The Horizon to the East Stage next year for their long overdue first festival headliner set. The band and the festival have curated an unbelievable day of music. May 31st is going to be an unforgettable night for Victoria Park.”

East London’s beautiful Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets also hosted a hugely popular 4-day community focused midweek event last year. Kicking off on the second Bank Holiday Monday, In The Neighbourhood is set to return across the half term week for 2019. Featuring free access to the All Points East site, In The Neighbourhood will host a vibrant programme of activities and entertainment, in collaboration with the local community, businesses, organisations and suppliers. From free Outdoor Cinema, Live Music & Entertainment, Street Food to Pop Up Bars, Theatre, Arts, Sports & Wellbeing, Children’s Activities and much more.

A truly unique festival environment, an excellence in production, facilities, hospitality and customer service unlike anything seen before in Victoria Park will underpin the entirety of the 10 day event. From the team behind events such as Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, and the world’s number one venue The O2, the highest standards will be stamped across every aspect of the event.
